Grizzly Adams Did Have a Beard
As some of you may have heard, this Tuesday began one of my favorite months of the year, No-Shave November, in large part because it means that I can’t shave and have to deal with an itchy face that nonetheless makes me irresistible to women who go for the mustache-and-splotches-elsewhere look. This is the month to wear overalls, aviators, wife beaters, and cut off sweatshirts (at least until April when we have White Trash BBQ). Trust me, ruggedness adds to your IQ and overall personal appeal.
Well, after a slight snafu with the sweatshirt folks, I went down to their store and fixed things up, and they should arrive next week. I know you’re salivating over the prospect of wearing these beautiful concoctions of fabric, zipper and string.
Warren Peace is coming up on the 10th, and it should be a very sweet event. Young Tylan Rogers has agreed to take part in a skit, so we should all go to support our fledgling thespian, and everyone else form the dorm taking part. Take notes, too, because we’re totally going to one-up them later in the year with Mac Hall in Concert. Yea! Who-ah!
Ok, that’s all I’ve got. Be ready for me to approach you sometime this week for a constituency report, which is awesome. Oh, and the dating service is still in the works...Keep up the good work on the beards. Play the banjo.

Mac Men of the Week: Cory Marshall
Cory Marshall wins this illustrious prize for this week due to his medieval-inspired foam and duct tape weapons. Way to go! Gladiators, yea! Oh, and that’s Chris LaPlante modeling them (by the way, he’s going to get married this summer). So, the lesson is, make mock killing devices and end up as MMotW!
A Quote & A Poet
Ghost Train, by Adam Duritz
I took the cannonball down to the ocean Across the desert from sea to shining sea I rode a ladder that climbs across the nation Fifty million feet of earth between the buried and me"
How do you do?"She said, "Hey, how do you do?"
She buys a ticket 'cause it's cold where she comes fromShe climbs aboard because she's scared of getting older in the snowLove is a ghost train rumbling through the darknessHold on to me darling I've got nowhere else to go
"How do you do?"She said, "How do you do?"
I took the cannonball down to the oceanWatched the diesel disappear beneath the tumbling waves Love is a ghost train howling on the radio"Remember everything." she said, "when only memory remains."
"How do you do?"She said, "Hey, how do you do?"
Speculators may do no harm as bubbles on the stream of enterprise. But the position is serious when enterprise becomes the bubble on the whirlpool of speculation. When the capital development of a country becomes the by-product of the activities of a casino, the job is likely to be ill-done. -John Maynard Keynes
The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry. -Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms
Man is tormented by no greater anxiety than to find someone quickly to whom he can hand over that great gift of freedom with which the ill-fated creature is born. –Fyodor Dostoevky, The Brothers Karamazov

Thanks for coming out to Midnight Madness on Wednesday! If you have any comments/suggestions, please e-mail me at email@example.com so I may have a better idea of what to do next year. This weekend is a big one, as swimming hosts the NWC Relay's and football hosts Willamette (basically a playoff birth is on the line). Congratulations to the volleyball team and men's soccer team as they both clinched NWC Championships over Fall Break. That means we had three of the seven fall sports win conference. That's pretty sweet! Look to see more information about Whitworth hosting playoff games in the near future! Take care.
Only three weeks until Thanksgiving. Mmm... I can already smell my mother's pumpkin pie. As we are all getting ready to go home, I would like you all to think about those who will not have a Thanksgiving dinner this year. This startling fact is cause for Whitworth's Second Annual Turkey Drive. Starts on Thursday, November 3rd through Thursday, November 24th.
Whitworth College has partnered with the Women and Children's Free Restaurant to provide 85 local families with turkeys. This fundraiser will be a competition between dorms and off-campus. Every Monday there will be a prize for the dorm that raised the most turkeys from the previous week. Jars for each dorm and off campus will be available in the HUB starting tomorrow.
Also, if you would like to serve Thanksgiving dinner to families in Spokane here are some opportunities:
Women and Children's Free Restaurant- Contact Terry Davis at 324-1995
Martin Luther King Jr. Outreach Center- Contact Charina Caruthers at 455-8722
*These dinners will take place on Tuesday, November 22nd*
